It's A...



It's a boy? It's a girl? Those are the two questions we were asking last night before my cousin's baby gender revealment party. I've never been to one of these types of parties, but it was a lot of fun and I couldn't wait for them to cut into the cake. Neither Jennifer or Chris knew what the baby was. So, it was just as exciting to see the looks on their faces when they made the first cut! Here are some pictures from the party:

The excited parents-to-be

The first cut

And it's a BOY!!!

Everyone's guess
The mommy-to-be and me
Congratulations, Jennifer and Chris! We can wait to meet Baby Nathan!!!

In other news, I am less than 24 hours away from my surgery. I am anxious, nervous and ready to get it over with. So, I apologize, in advance, if I have to take a break from blogging for the next few days. Thanks so much for all of your continued thoughts and prayers.
